A Zero-Second Brain Cycle Revisited

Many of your patients may present with a zero-second brain cycle. You cannot manually feel any brain expansion or contraction. Why is this important?

For reasons that I cannot explain scientifically, it seems to have a tremendous effect on brain function. Everyone presents differently with a zero-second brain cycle: headache, ADHD, reading comprehension, angry, anxiety, cannot focus or concentrate, etc. The list of issues goes on and on.

I found that every patient has her/his own fascial story from conception. The beauty of the Gillespie Approach is that you do not have to figure out what happened to the patient. I tried to unsuccessfully do that in 1980.

Instead you just listen to the body’s fascial web and allow it to tell you its story. As you hold the patient with intention, you allow her/him to revisit the emotional and physical traumas of his/her life.

The patient holds the gift of healing. We just need to tap into it to allow the body to help correct itself, an old osteopathic principle from Dr. Andrew Still.

When I started my work in the 1970s, I thought craniosacral therapy was the thing. Then I slowly discovered the fascial web was the king since the craniosacral system was completely immeshed in the fascial web.

When the web got restricted with trauma, the craniosacral system tightened and distorted with it. When the entire web started to release in therapy, the craniosacral system began to correct itself.

We clearly see this phenomenon at birth. Since the fascial web controls the entire tiny body, no craniosacral techniques are taught at our newborn/infant seminar.

Once the patient comes out of zero-second brain cycle and the brain begins to expand and contract, good things start to happen. The fascial web can relax and work more efficiently, usually resulting in a longer brain cycle and better body function.
